The author has now uploaded a 64 bit Windows compile, but I don't know if it's quite official enough for CCRL to test (not part of the release, just a builds/win64 folder in the repository.)

Thanks Tony. In fact it is already the 3rd exe. I am already testing it.

I released Amoeba 3.2 today. Windows and Linux binaries are available here :
https://github.com/abulmo/amoeba/releases/tag/v3.2

In self-play Amoeba 3.2 is ~30 Elo stronger than Amoeba 3.1

As usual it comes with a few utilities that may work with other UCI chess engines:
- tourney: a trinomial sprt tourney manager
- postmortem: a reverse game analyser
- epdtest (NEW): to test an engine on a set of positions from an epd file.

Please don't spend too much testing time on Minic 2.40, it was release for TCEC but is almost equal to 2.38. But the next 2.43 release to come in a few days is kinda stronger ... maybe +30Elo.

Thanks for the new release ....

Will be tested in my rating list replacing the 3.1 version which is already rated 3082 Elo ....

Wasabi 1.4.0, an engine not announced anywhere else, 2400+ Elo apparently (look out, Dr. Deeb! ;))

With computer-chess.org no longer being updated, we should be glad we still have this thread going.

Yes, I see, I missed that one. :oops: Still, it's good to keep this thread up-to-date as well, I'm sure you'd agree. :)
